What sort of setup are you guys doing for Spa? Traditionally low downforce but that makes things "interesting" going up Eau Rouge :D

I'm considering switching from the Fezza to the Lambo for this one, so I'll be using any setup that won't send me sideways up Raidillon :D
I found the default aggressive setup manageable, but I might just be using a tweaked safe setup to be, well, on the safe side ;)
Besides, I'm a 2.20-2.21 kinda guy so there's no low downforce setup on earth that would enable me to keep up with you guys.

I fancied a go in the Porsche again but you're right - a trip at high speed to a barrier (usually backwards) would more than likely be on the cards :roflmao:

Well done all. Unfortunately my race was over on lap 4. My internet decided to have a lag/freeze moment right at the kink at the start of the Kemmel straight which put me straight into the wall!? Thankfully didn't collect anyone.

Ah that's rubbish, hate it when stuff like that happens!

I think I now have a Prost to my Senna with @sebastalona - We had a good "introductory" battle at Silverstone but today was on another level. Side by side through numerous corners fighting for the win with the Vantage having just enough in it to get P1. Cracking stuff and it's the reason I'm here doing these races. If I find the time I'll upload a few clips.

That was some great racing again gentlemen ! :thumbsup: I was a bit overly cautious going through Eau Rouge up Raidillon on lap 1 and lost a place to @Herlev and spent the remainder of the race trying to regain that position, but ended up 0.6 seconds behind him for P5.
Sorry for that little nudge coming out of the Bus Stop by the way, it looked like you lost a bit of traction there and I was already in full acceleration out of the corner.
And going into Les Combes on one of the last laps, you caught me off guard by braking really early, I was so surprised (I was just going to tuck back in behind you for the corner at that point) that I completely overshot my own braking point and went too deep into the corner. I could have had you there but you did a good switchback. I'm just happy I didn't wipe us both out. All in all, some really fair and close racing, thanks for that !

And as always: congrats to the podium finishers ! See you gents next time :)

Ah man, that's a bummer...I had one little microlag/stutter as well just as I was turning in for Pouhon but luckily without any bad consequences. Don't know if it was the connection or a graphics glitch in my VR headset though. Better luck next time !

That was one of the best battles I've been in for a very long time :thumbsup:
For the last 15 minutes my rear tires were cooking, so it was a battle just keeping the car pointing in the right direction while the rear view mirror was filled with a Ferrari. You really pilled on the pressure while keeping it clean at the same time. Awesome racing :D

Well, most of them were actually faster, the Lambo are just encredible wide :D
But still brilliant racing. Just a shame more people aren't signing up. I thought ACC was the most popular sim...

Would love to see those ! Do you record all race replays Chris ? Reason I'm asking is because I need too eek out every last drop of performance put of my system to run in VR at relatively high settings, I can't afford to record replays myself :(
I might post a suggestion about this in the other thread.

Yep I do, I might be able to upload the replay file at some point
